At Moss Cottage Boarding Kennels Manchester our payment is by way of cash / debit card / credit card (1.7% interest charge) on arrival or departure but ‘cheques’ are only accepted on arrival. All prices above are inclusive of Boarding, Food, Exercise, Heating and VAT. Specialist Diets will need to be provided by the customer (unfortunately no reduction in price is made).
All animals must be fully vaccinated and the Kennel Cough vaccine is mandatory for all dogs. All vaccinations must be up to date and we will require proof of this in the form of a veterinary certificate.
Since the Kennel Cough bacteria can be present anywhere and can travel for considerable distances through the air, it can affect any dog… even one which never leaves its own back garden. However, kennel cough is more likely to occur when the concentration of dogs is greater, such as at a dog show, kennel, vets and other places dogs go e.g. pet shops. Dogs can also be exposed while running loose or while being walked near other dogs or playing in the park. In short, it is possible for kennel cough (canine bronchitis) to be passed on anywhere that dogs congregate.
Kennels with a rapid turnover of guests can be particularly susceptible and this is because, in a kennel, a dog encounters two conditions that do not exist at home which are the proximity to a number of potentially contagious dogs and the excitement of a less familiar environment, which can result in lowered resistance to disease. These same factors explain why children are more likely to catch the flu in school, rather than at home.
We ask that all dogs are vaccinated with the Bordatella Vaccine (which is a squirt up the nose) against the disease. It is important to understand the Bordetella vaccination used to prevent this viral disease is made from only one strain of over the 100 different strains of the virus. Thus the vaccination is not as effective against some strains as others. Some strains are not included in any of the vaccinations. Therefore, in some cases there is no prevention against Kennel Cough.
No amount of supervision, sanitation, or personalised care can prevent a dog from “catching” an airborne disease. All that we can do is to recommend immunisation against Kennel Cough. Please ask your vet for details of the vaccination, it will have to be administered at least a week before boarding and now lasts for a year so is easy to get when your dog has its annual booster.
We also refuse to take in any obviously sick dogs or any dogs that are clearly coughing. The above is for the comfort and safety of all our boarders, where a risk of cross-infection may exist.
We need to see each dog’s vaccination card or other veterinary certificate at the time of checking in for our own records.
